Oil, 81/2 x 12 inches

I completed this little painting today, inspired from a trip I did a couple of years ago.  I think the arches in the background give enough hint to know where this scene is.  It will be exhibited and for sale at the Melbourne Society of Women Painters & Sculptors 103rd Exhibition, to be held at The Victorian Artists Society, 430 Albert St, East Melbourne from 2nd August for two weeks.  All welcome.


Monet’s Garden

Oil 1.2 x 80 - SOLD

This is the second version I have painted in oils of Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France.  It’s a very beautiful subject to paint, with many angles to view around the water lilly pond.  We were there in their summer (July, 2011) and I’d love to go back in the Spring to see other plants in bloom – sometime in the future.  I worked this image from three photos which I pieced together.  Of course, I have used artistic licence on the colours, however, this is how this picturesque scene made me feel while I was there – it’s a dreamy feeling.

Oil on canvas

This painting has been sitting in storage since 2008, abandoned, as I was unhappy with it.  Yesterday I took the brush to it again and reorganised the water, the lighting and a few boats and am a lot happier with it now.  Sometimes we need time away to discover what needs to be done.
